All students enrolling in public and private schools are required to be adequately immunized

Most students entering school for the first time will receive the vaccines they need from their health care provider or local health department prior to school entry. Rising 7th graders and 12th graders will need additional vaccines and without them, your child may not be able to start school on time.
